You have two 2.5? SATA Express external enclosures that house either two mSATA or m.2 SSDs and a larger 3.5? version that houses two SATA 2.5? notebook hard drives or SSDs. While the form factor differs, all are setup in a RAID 0 array with an internal RAID controller and then connected to the SATA Express interface that plugs directly into motherboards featuring SATA Express support. ASUS likely won’t be selling a complete drive (enclosure and SSDs) in the United States and instead just be offering the empty enclosure with the RAID controller setup and support CD.
